Out Laut

Jeremy Adler - Alphabox (3'49"). The opening track of the German-produced anthology Lautpoesie, available in its entirety here, is dated 1974 and features the London-born poet and German professor Jeremy Adler (b. 1947 and thus around 27 years old at the time of the recording). Percussive explorations of the higher registers (tight vocal cords, small oral apertures) dominate, but coos and trills and sibilants, and even the occasional lexical item ("who" and "why"), are also to be heard. • A nice companion to Paul Dutton's later work on Mouthpieces, a track of which was discussed here in May 2006.
